I don't have many Halloween viewing traditions, especially since a lot of the things we used to watch when I was a kid aren't available on DVD, but thanks to YouTube and a particularly wonderful uploader, I'm still able to watch Jeff Goldblum's version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

He's my fave version ever, and I wish they'd release it on DVD one of these days.

I just watched the first Halloween episode of The Real Ghostbusters (at least some of THOSE are out on DVD finally) and happily the second one is also available on YouTube. Ah, memories.

OH EM GEE.

Stephen Fry cast as Mycroft Holmes in the sequel to Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes film

PERFECT. Just perfect.

Seriously, now they HAVE to cast Hugh Laurie as Moriarty. I would die a happy, happy fangirl if they did that.

In Space, No One Can Hear You Say Arrrrr

"Warner Brothers has determined that what its classic 1935 swashbuckler “Captain Blood” needed was a trip to outer space. Variety reports that the studio is preparing a remake of “Captain Blood,” which starred Errol Flynn as a British doctor turned Caribbean pirate, which will move the action off the planet earth and trade galleons for intergalactic space vessels. Michael and Peter Spierig will direct the film and John Brownlow will write it. Despite the seemingly radical change of scenery, Bill Gerber, a producer of the new “Captain Blood,” told Variety, “There are some things you don’t mess with, and that is as classic a movie storyline as you will ever find.”"

I don't know what to think about this. I could be awesome or it could be horrifyingly bad. So much of this will depend on casting. I cannot think of one single actress who I'd say is a modern equivalent of Olivia de Havilland. And only Errol Flynn and a small number of other old time actors can pull off those moustaches.

The first trailer for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland just went up. More of a teaser than a full trailer, but the film looks good.

They're certainly pushing the Johnny Depp angle; you never even hear Alice speak in the trailer, which kind of bugs me. It's her story, damn it.

Other than that, I like the look of the whole thing. Very Burtonesque, of course. I love the color and the costumes, and the Cheshire Cat creeps me out. I didn't know it was going to have a 3D option, so now I'm wondering if it'll be worth shelling out the big bucks for that or not.

The trailer is up for the new live action movie adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.

Watch it here

I loved this book when I was a kid, so I'm kind of excited about it. *g*

Don Cheadle Replaces Terrence Howard in Iron Man sequel

Well, shit. I really liked Howard in the role. This movie is likely to be just as big as the first one, so why the hell would anyone back out over "financial differences"??? Especially since Rhodes is supposed to have an expanded role in the sequel as War Machine; Howard was even enthusing over a possible War Machine film of his own.

I like Cheadle, but I don't really see him as the superhero type. Howard fit that much better, IMO. Man, what a bonehead move.
